Brigadeiro History

Brigadeiro ( Bree-gah-day-ro) is a Brazilian truffle made with condensed milk, chocolate and butter. They were created in the 1940s to support a candidate’s campaign who was running for President. His name was Eduardo Gomes and he was a Brigadier ( Brigadeiro is Portuguese for Brigadier) in the Brazilian military.  Women supporters started making these truffles to raise money for his campaign. Although he didn’t win, the truffles became very popular. People started calling them “the Brigadier’s sweet” and eventually just brigadeiro.
